Academic Staff Induction: DUSA

A guide for all new staff who teach

Dundee University Students' Union

The University of Dundee and DUSA has a uniquely close and supportive relationship.

DUSA is the legal representative and charitable organisation for matriculated students at the University of Dundee. It has won best students' union awards several times in recent years and has an active Student Executive and Student Representative Council.

The Union building is a bustling hub not only for students, but also for staff who want to have a relaxed meeting with barista coffee.

Student Partnership Agreement

The University and DUSA work together to develop an annual Student Partnership Agreement (SPA) to further enhance the experience of our students.

The SPAs detail agreed priorities for each academic year and include key performance indicators to help with evaluation of effectiveness.

Student Led Teaching Awards (SLTAs)

DUSA runs the SLTAs, where teachers are nominated by their students in several categories, including most inspirational and best personal adviser. Every nominee gets a commemorative mug, which is a coveted item around campus!
